I am running a PIII-500, 256, mem, 13G HD, XP Pro. I have been using Incredimail for some time and was not aware that I had a problem, the problem is this. When I send e-mail, I use the BCC: in order to mask all of the recipients e-mail addresses from others, just yesterday, someone had replied to one of my e-mails, and all of the recipients addresses were visible. Maybe I don't understand what the BCC is for, or the CC. If some one could clarify for me how to hide all of the recipeints e-mail addresses, I would be very appreciative. Thanks

Many have abandoned Incredimail

as it uses web bugs which (I don't understand but it) represents a privacy intrusion. My company automatically blocks any mail sent with Incredimail

Nontheless, adding a name to the BCC (blind carbon copy) field should 'blind' the other recipients from the each other. Simple test is to send a test e-mail to someone and put their address in the BCC field as well as your own. When you recieve the mail you should see only your own address.

It is easy to mistakenly use the CC (carbon copy) field in error, which simply lists and shows all recipients.

Just take a few seconds when sending to make sure you are using the correct field.

My Lady installed Incredimail and my spyware detector immediately detected 4 asst'd spyware (web-bugs):O embedded and active. This got me concerned. Angry Additionally all mail you send thru there is able to be sideviewed. Equivalent of sending mail thru you company server where they can read and inspect & record the contents. Needless to say I uninstalled the next day!! It'll try to plant itself in your restore to re-install itself incase you delete. Also several other places for purpose of re-installing or continuing spying after attempted delete/un-install. Worse, Incredimail spams your listed addresses plus all you mail to and includes a live link at bottom of each mail you send! If you wouldn't want your next door neighbor opening and reading every letter you receive, the dump this junk!! JMHO! Wink

Two more reasons to dump incredimail
by LarryD / January 18, 2004 6:31 PM PST

First, (I believe) it doesn't allow you to back up, so when you decide to switch, it is a nightmare.

Second, most recipients can't open the mail as it comes as an attachment and they get quite confused. SO it looks all cutesy to you, but to them it is not appreciated.

Just a tip.

Some don't understand that if one makes a plea for help in an existing discussion, it may not get a reply. It's also a wee bit off topic since this forum is about Windows XP and not a PC Application or possible Communications.

Just a few tips.

1. Don't bury your requests in another person's discussion.
2. Place your issue in a matching forum.

In closing I don't see this issue to be caused by Windows XP.
